Fyffes chooses Salvo for UK distribution centres

17 April 2013

Importer and distributor of tropical produce, Fyffes, has installed Castell’s Salvo drive-away prevention system at its UK distribution centres.

Salvo is now protecting loading and unloading operations at the company’s Livingston, Wakefield, Coventry and Basingstoke sites – a total of 31 loading bays.

Drivers report to the transport office and are allocated a loading bay. After reversing their vehicle onto the bay, they return to the transport office, leave their ignition key and collect the Salvo Susie for that loading bay. They then install the Susie on the emergency airline coupling, which releases a trapped key. This key is inserted and turned in the Salvo Control Panel on the outside of the bay. An amber beacon indicates  the loading bay is safe and ready to use. The loader opens the door, trapping the key in the SCP outside. While the door remains raised and the key trapped in the control panel, the trailer cannot be moved.
